As MVNOs they have contacts with the operators, virgin with tmobile and tesco with O2 but any change in ownership would allow the respective MVNOs to get out of the contract and use a different network, so i doubt there would be much difference in price in the short time. Although the register mentions in the article this maybe a reason why they have decided to do a 50 : 50 merger so the change in ownership clause does not become an issue.

Yep thats one problem with using OSX on a portable divice. Unlike other OSes that have been built from the ground up for mobile use, such as symbian and windows mobile, OSX seems to use to much memory or cannot perform multitasking efficiently. I have a nokia N95 8GB so spec wise it is similar to the iPhone, i run that sometimes with 5 different applications at one time and have never experiencedÂout of memory errors and rarely experienced slow downs. Even symbians precursor EPOC had full multitasking.

Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital.
